Bottle from the Rugby tap. Aroma of toffee and caramel. Taste is quite heavy, more toffee and caramel coming through. Goes down smoothly. A bit basic, but still decent.

Ah, thank you, Arianna.
This was poured into a thistle for review, but often had a couple in a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within a minute.
The smell had a nice semi-sweet smoky meatiness to it.
The taste was basically the same-with a decent sweet aftertaste to it.
On the palate, this sat right at a medium on the body.
Overall, good Scotch ale I could have again.

A crisp, refreshing, good hot day beer. A little bit of malt to give it the Scottish Ale flavor.

Bottle poured to a pint glass at the Grand Hyatt lobby in Denver. Pours orange colored, clear, with a creamy off white head on top. Aroma of some caramel and bready malts dominate, with some light floral notes on the back end. Flavor is mostly caramel malts, bready, much like a scotch ale (this is my first "Scottish" ale). Finishes OK, with medium body and a bit of juiciness. Medium carbonation. Overall not my favorite beer but my first of the style and certainly not bad.
